       Totally rideable but definitely steep and exhausting

       Yep, rideable with some steep technical bits in both directions.

       Going uphill on the Edwin Rd side is fun until right near the very top. The downhill just over the crest is plnety wide and fairly steep and bumpy. On the way out from the loop, the small uphill section is very difficult to finish in the saddle especially ially after a long day. The downhill section on the way out is easily one of the best parts in this area! Super diverse and flowy!

       Getting to the trailhead off hwy77 is on W Edwin Road, 5+ miles of dirt road, slow going, so plan accordingly.
      Most of the route is on double track, and really just an access to the Park. It would be perfect on an e-bike ????
